This reports relates to the studies in Nature suggesting that high salt diet causes autoimmunity.
“A salty taste……more like a fishy smell”
Maybe Ram can do an epidemeology study of the incidence of MS (autoimmunity) in regions with high salt diets. I can guess the answer.
The mean estimated salt intake, derived from urinary sodium excretion, for adults aged 19 to 64 years was 8.1g per day. Men had a mean estimated intake of 9.3g per day, and women had a mean estimated intake of 6.8g per day.
An analysis of trends in salt intake (g per day), including all urinary sodium surveys carried out in UK countries between 2000/01 and 2011, showed a significant downwards trend in mean salt intake overall and also for both men and women separately.
Statistical analysis showed there has been a significant reduction in mean salt intake between 2000/01 and 2011 from 9.5g to 8.1g per day
But MS is on the way up in women…Go figure.
